A version of this article was originally published at BoLS. When I’m sick or burnt out, it’s only a matter of time before I start a rewatch of a favorite show. This go-round it was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I had only just made it to the “Xander’s a hyena” episode when I noticed that Joss Whedon was trending.

The best fidget toys for active brains, hands, and feet

How 'Hawkeye' Hit the Bullseye on Kate Bishop's Queer Christmas Story

The first episode of the hit show Hawkeye introduced us to the MCU’s version of Kate Bishop.

Director Taika Waititi gave us an unorthodox hero’s tale with Thor: Ragnarok. But is it also a story of the indigenous experience?
